Hello Restorationccc,

Thanks for your question! Unfortunately, the way you phrased your question is unclear and different from what you state in the next sentence. Let's try to clarify this.

1) Based on the description, you created a website in Weebly and you use those website files with the domain that you registered through Web Hosting Hub.

2) We are not sure if you're trying to use the hosting with Weebly, or if you're trying to use the hosting service provided by Web Hosting Hub.

If you intend to use the domain name on another hosting service, then you would have the option other either creating an A record and pointing the domain to Weebly's hosting service. This would mean that you would keep your hosting account live here, but you're actually hosting the website on a different server (at Weebly) - Mail would still be here. The drawback is that you would be using two different hosting services.

You can also discontinue a hosting service, release the domain and then transfer the domain to the other service. This would mean you would need to move your domain away from Web Hosting Hub,.

If you're trying to keep everything here, then you would need to POINT the domain using an A Record. Here's a link on using the Advanced DNS zone editor . This article tells you how to make an A Record and point to the website.

If you are trying to simply MOVE the Weebly files to our hosting, unfortunately there are some drawbacks. I'll refer you to some documentation that help explain the issue:

I hope this helps to clarify the question! Please let us know if yo require further assistance.
